Member for Malvern, Michael O’Brien MP, recently opened the $2.5million redevelopment of Phoenix Park Community Centre with Stonnington Mayor, Cr. John Chandler.
The Phoenix Park Community Centre, located in Malvern East, has undergone redevelopment to improve functionality and building access. The redevelopment has included the installation of a new lift, reconfiguration of rooms to open up more space and the construction of a commercial kitchen to provide a centre-based meals program.
“This redevelopment was a key priority of the local council and the local community,” Mr O’Brien said.
“When people have places like this to come together, we know that it helps their communities to become stronger, more connected, inclusive and better places to live.”
The Coalition Government has provided $150, 000 support the redevelopment of Phoenix Park Community Centre through the Community Support Grant which is designed to improve community infrastructure, facilities and services.
The Phoenix Park Community Centre is located at Rob Roy Road, Malvern East.
